As a participant or as a member of the audience, you’ll have fun testing your expertise in wildlife trivia at the 22nd Annual Student Quiz Bowl in Reno!


Calling all wildlife undergraduates! Are you and your classmates getting ready for the Quiz Bowl in Reno? Registration will open on Wednesday, May 1, and close at 11:59 p.m. EDT on Saturday, September 7. Registrations submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.

Quiz Bowl is a fast-paced wildlife knowledge competition between teams of four undergraduates (including an alternate, five students can be on a team). It pitches teams against each other to see who can rack up the most points answering questions ranging from taxonomy to wildlife management. Last year, more than 20 teams engaged in a highly competitive contest. The winning team gets its name emblazoned on a plaque that hangs at TWS headquarters and receives a plaque to display at its school.

Quiz Bowl will span two days this year (no late-night finals!) from Monday-Tuesday. The final four matches will begin on Tuesday at 2 p.m. (subject to change) with the final two matches taking place at 5 p.m. Come join us and cheer for your alma mater or your favorite team!
